Conor McGregor’s agent, Audie Attar, will offer delegates at Premier Sports Network’s Player Care Conference a glimpse of what it is like to manage fight sports’ biggest star after being unveiled as the latest speaker for the highly-anticipated October 11 event in London. Attar has confirmed his attendance at the sports industry’s No.1 gathering dedicated to athlete welfare just days before his client takes on boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. in what is expected to be the sport’s most lucrative contest ever.

With McGregor set to pocket at least $100m from Saturday night’s superfight in Las Vegas, Attar will be able to offer an intriguing insight into how he has helped to steer the ‘rags to riches’ career of an athlete who was picking up welfare benefits as recently as four-and-a-half years ago before he hit the big time.

Attar will speak about how McGregor’s transition to global sporting icon has been handled, with the Irishman rapidly rising through the ranks of the UFC mixed martial arts series before lining up an unprecedented boxing debut against Mayweather, widely considered to be the best pound-for-pound fighter of his generation.

Attar will also reveal how ‘Notorious’ McGregor’s gripping public persona has been carved out whilst ensuring that his spellbinding skills in the octagon have gone from strength to strength ahead of his first professional contest in the boxing ring this Saturday.

“Audie Attar manages arguably the biggest personality in sport today, so we are thrilled that he will be speaking at the Player Care Conference”

– said Premier Sports Network’s Executive Director, David Bull.

“Conor McGregor has enjoyed a whirlwind career so far and it will be fascinating to hear about how the high-profile fighter’s team have managed his development inside and outside the ring.”

Attar is the latest stellar speaker to be confirmed for the exclusive, invitation-only event at the Dorchester Collection Hotel in Mayfair. Unlike other industry gatherings, the Conference focuses on the specific issue of athlete welfare in an intimate environment, with like-minded backroom club staff and player agents coming together to network and discuss international best practice across a number of vital issues.
